Press Release

Ladrönn has returned to HIP FLASK to illustrate the penultimate issue of Richard Starkings’ acclaimed series. Ladrönn won an Eisner for his artwork in HIP FLASK: MYSTERY CITY, and he and Starkings returns with a lush, beautiful story about redemption and love, OUROBOROUS.

And, as a bonus, the price of HIP FLASK: OUROBOROUS has been decreased — from $5.99 to $4.99! It’s a Christmas miracle, and is it any surprise that it comes from the genial, white-bearded Starkings?

“Call me a numbskull,” said Starkings, “but I figured readers need more bang for their buck, not less.”

HIP FLASK tells the story of the eponymous anthropomorphic hippopotamus, an information agent in a dystopian future where human-animal hybrids, created as implements of war, struggle to be accepted into society. A series of extra-long issues, HIP FLASK is set in the same universe as Starkings’ beloved series ELEPHANTMEN.


HIP FLASK will be in stores on December 26!
